We are proud to amplify that UNC Hospitals has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the “Best Regional Hospitals for Equitable Access.” This inaugural accolade from U.S. News & World Report highlights our commitment to providing high-quality care while ensuring equitable access for all patients, regardless of background or socioeconomic status.

UNC Hospitals stands among only 52 other hospitals nationwide, including only 3 others in North Carolina to receive this honor for dedication to improving health outcomes in underserved communities. This recognition underscores the hard work and dedication of our physicians, staff, and healthcare partners. Together, we strive to advance patient care and promote health equity across North Carolina and beyond.

For more details on this achievement and its significance, please refer to the official announcements from the UNC School of Medicine and U.S. News & World Report.

We look forward to continuing our mission of providing exceptional urological care with a focus on inclusivity and community health.

“The public mission draws and keeps many of us to the UNC School of Medicine. We are very grateful to US News for recognizing organizations, like the UNC Medical Center, that provide vulnerable populations with substantial access to high quality care.”
